Pim Karaköy

Time Out says

Pim is the latest addition  to the lovely, if now plentiful,  little bistros that have  opened their doors in  Karaköy in recent months.  Already lying on the same  stretch of road as Balthazar,  Gakki and Komodor, Pims  was carved out of what used  to be a tool and motorbike  repair shop, before being  bought by two young  restauranteurs.  


The restoration project  of the original buildings  Pim is clear success. Two  shops were bought out:  one was turned into a small  patisserie and the other one  is now the main restaurant.  Pim’s pitta bread wraps  are the main draw, served  with fries and a choice  of sauces. As for what  else is on display, there  are delicious hand-made  macaroni dishes (the work  of MSA-qualified cooks)  along with a fine choice of  breakfast buffets, all of  which can be enjoyed in  the clean, airy atmosphere  of the place. For those  of a more carnivorous  persuasion, they also have  sirloin and T-bone steaks  on their menu. The pita  bread and all the cakes are  cooked in their own furnace.  Those who crave for fattoush  salads and içli köfte will find  they are comparable in taste  to those found in Lebanon or  Antakya. In terms of prices  you can fill yourself up for  40-50 TL, on tracks with  the slight inflation Karaköy  suffers from.  





Pim is the epitome of  the new Karaköy cool,  with modern furnishings,  industrial lamps, open  minimalism and chic  Selçuk Fergökçe murals on  the walls, along with the  typically lush varnished  tables and cool glasses.  Amongst all these modern  trappings, only the evil eye  remains from the old tool  shack. This is how things  go in fast-changing Karaköy  and in Pim’s case, it makes  up for a very comfy joint for  breakfast or lunch.
